I have been teaching for the last 25 years with my certification in Special Education, specifically focused on students with mild to moderate disabilities. I am originally from Louisiana, a Louisiana State University and Southern graduate, where I retired from teaching, and moved to Charleston 2 years ago and decided my time in the classroom was not finished. I accepted this position at Garrett in August and have enjoyed helping the students to achieve their academic success. I am also certified in the state of Texas where I taught high school for 2 years. My classroom experience started in elementary, saw the majority of my teaching in middle school, and is ending on the high school level.
